Kumbilappam Recipe

Kumbilappam is a sweet snack of Kerala. It is very delicious and have attractive smell. We used to make this in a special leaf called vazhana leaves(leaf of cinnamon,but bigger one). You can make this with jack fruit or plantain. Here i used jack fruit. If you don’t have cinnamon leaves, you can use plantain leaves instead. Jack fruit is always healthy since it has high fiber content and vitamins. This is a Vishu special snack.
